make things happen

Here is our list of some great motivational articles from this week. I hope everyone had a great week and weekend and is ready to kick some ass this week! Lets get it rolling.

1.) It’s Ok To Be Ambitious by Chad Howse– This is one of My favorites from Chad. Once we realize our passion, forget our hangups, leave our bullshit aside, and finally give attention to the tasks that deserve our energy and commitment, life can free up in a way we could have never had imagined. That’s my take from this article. It’s obvious with all the incredible content that Chad puts out constantly that he has taken this quote from Steven Pressfield to heart…(one that he posts in this blog)

Ambition, I have come to believe, is the most primal and sacred fundamental of our being. To feel ambition and to act upon it is to embrace the unique calling of our souls. Not to act upon that ambition is to turn our backs on ourselves and on the reason for our existence.

2.) A Couple Videos From Arnold Schwarzenegger- After reading the book Total Recall, a memoir of Arnold’s incredible life thus far, I developed a much greater respect for the dude. Sure he’s made some terrible decisions that have affected and tarnished his reputation, but looking at some of his positive qualities a bit closer, I realized Arnold is a guy who doesn’t let obstacles get in his way, he just crushes right through them. Here are a couple examples of his undaunted determination to succeed in whatever he decided to pursue.



3.) My Bucket List: Awesome Goals for a Thrillingly Heroic Life by Cody McKibben– Do any of you have new years resolutions? Do you write them down? How about a bucket list? Are you comfotable living an average, middle of the road sort of life or are you out there each day checking things off those lists? I can guarantee you aren’t truly happy sitting around, doing mindless work and living a safe and predictable life. I know I’m not. Each day is truly a gift, as we were made aware of this week with the tragedies in Connecticut. How can something like this not make you so thankful to wake up each day with a smile on and a passion for whatever is ahead? Cody’s bucket list is good framework to start looking at your life through a more dynamic and colorful lens.
